Jurgen Klopp says he is unsure about the severity of Divock Origi’s hamstring injury during Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Leicester City at Anfield.

The Belgium international was forced off in the 38th minute of the Boxing Day clash with a suspected hamstring injury and was replaced by compatriot Christian Benteke.

We have the next game in three days and six days the next, nine days the next – I hope he can play in one of these games

The substitute broke the deadlock after half-time to seal three points for Liverpool after a three-game losing run in the Premier League.

Klopp discussed Origi’s injury setback ahead of the Reds’s clash against Sunderland at Stadium of Light on Wednesday night.

“I hope it’s not too serious, we will see. They spoke about a little cramp,” Klopp told his post-match media conference.

“You have been here longer than me; I didn’t know the word before I came to England, but ‘hamstring’ is the worst word of the year for me. It’s always hamstring, hamstring, hamstring. That’s the intensity of the game and the fixtures.

“We will see. I hope it’s not too serious. We have the next game in three days and six days the next, nine days the next – I hope he can play in one of these games.”

The Reds are currently without Slovakia international Martin Skrtel due to a hamstring injury, whilst the Merseyside outfit are hoping to get Daniel Sturridge back on the pitch.
